Brewers Vs. Rockies: Jeff Francis Takes The Mound At Home

Jeff Francis will be on the mound for the Colorado Rockies tonight and could move into second on the team's all-time wins list with a win tonight. Francis has struggled lately, however, and is looking to get back on track as the Rockies return home. Meanwhile, Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Michael Fiers will be making his first career start at Coors Field, which can be tricky for pitchers not used to the thin air in Denver.

1. Eric Young RF
2. Jonathan Herrera SS
3. Dexter Fowler CF
4. Carlos Gonzalez LF
5. Wilin Rosario C
